More house doings, in list format

This was the latest in a month’s worth of 14-hour workdays.

Today’s results:

Forgot to take enough pictures of progress (oops)
Built 4 bookcases & a table
Squished loads of plastic wrap into one l’il bag
Remembered follow-up appointment with locksmith
Cut tons of cardboard into recycle-bin-sized pieces
Filled the recycle can past capacity
Hung artwork on the walls where nails were left by previous owners
Showed friends around the new place
Put felt footies on a bunch of bookcases oil & new
Place d& leveled various furniture pieces
Donated another ton of cardboard to a friend’s recycle bin
Emptied book boxes & generated MORE cardboard. (Keeping these boxes, tho)

At the old house:

Packed, moved, & stored much of the Fancy Dishware I’ve inherited over the years
Trimmed back weeds  & fed birds
got the trash, recycles & garden waste bins out, and returned them when empty.

Somewhere in there I worked on my list of native perennials I like so I can share it with a landscaper who will help me with designing & digging in my new yard gardens…it’s getting to be a long list.

And I watched The Incredibles 2. Because we have internet & TV now, and it made great background noise for furniture assembly.

Today’s firsts: first use of microwave (it’s fancy!) and first drink spill. (iced tea, on old carpet that has successfully weathered many a previous spill at the old house.)

Bonus pic of our moving crew from Monday at the end of their successful campaign. I wholeheartedly recommend Brom’s. Lynn let us know exactly what we needed and provided plenty of excellent prep advice, and on Moving Day, Dennis, Brian, and Kevin did a fantastic job managing a complicated relocation.IMG_6329.JPG

And that’s all until later.
